Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

He has got a job..read back.

Ask the british agents for overseas athletes,they favour their athletes over british nationals because they get a cut of the athletes money..

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

Dont any of you want our talent to be the best they can be? Or do you think a 46.1 400m and 1.45.7 is not talented enough. If UKA Experts were looking at Darren they would have seen where he needs to improve..3.58 1500m! Darren and his coach are working on this weakness you would have seen this with...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

Most of the 80's great's had financial aid alot of them recieved money from private people (fans) Eddie kouacondous etc, along with brands and brown envelope's athlete's on the most part recieved money. To think otherwise shows naivety. How can you truly recover from your workout if you are standing...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

When Darren makes the world final 800m and runs 1.44 what will you say then? I tell what i will say,imagine what he could have run with funding, because the funding would mean he does not have to work. The £8000 Darren would receive would be plenty because he lives at home. Who was your 'friend'????...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

So should DSC give up?
1.45 800m/46.1 400m age 25 and no funding for the last 6 years!
I have spoken DSC and he feels he can't go on for much longer without funding.

I feel his grit and talent need to be rewarded with a little bit of funding.

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

Their is plenty of athletes on development funding that are older than St Clair. Colin Mc Court is 25 and the javlin woman laura. Their was room to put darren on development as it is for people who are 4 years away from making a final at Olympics or worlds and looking at darren performance and devel...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

Of your answer i believe Darren should be on Development funding as i feel he is between 2-4 years away from reaching his full potential and becoming a world class 800m runner. In addition the last Olympics in Beijing the standard was 1.46.0 which gaurentees selection to the team. Darren has this ti...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

back to your point St Clair went backwards during those UKA coaching years. Just looking at the times he is running now for 400m for instance no athlete should be able to improve their speed considerably by the age of 24 (which he did going from 47.2 to 46.1) showing poor coaching at an early age as...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

The more 'experts'we bring in the worse our male athlete's seem to get. Have you been down to Lee valley? it's embarrassing the coaching is not expert I was lucky enough to have worked with real coaches in the 70's & 80's,not a degree in sight! The beauty of track and field is measurement,look a...

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

By the way St Clair from the ages of 18-23 was coached by UKA coaches (However this was his worst period barring 2007) does this show that UKA coaches dont know how to coach????? I think so

Re: Darren St. Clair,Face don't fit????

Darren trains at lee valley(London) He does some of his training in 'US' to be with his coach(this comes out of Darren's own pocket),which means if he's there training he is not working and comes back to work in UK to raise more money,pretty dedicated! He's been doing this for 8 years with no fundin...
